While speaking on stage at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, director Michael Bay, who’s behind big blockbuster action flicks like Transformers and Armageddon, apparently wasn’t able to handle the heat of the spotlight.
Bay appeared on stage Monday for a presentation to talk about Samsung’s new 105-inch ultra high definition curved HDTVs when an apparent teleprompter malfunction caused Bay to completely freeze up during his planned speech, reports Huffington Post.
After Samsung’s Joe Stinziano asked Bay what inspires him to come up with his “unbelievable ideas” in his movies, Bay started to answer before trailing off and blaming the teleprompter saying, “the type is all off. Sorry. But I’ll just wing this.”
